Select Images Easily
You can easily select images to be processed. You can do it by selecting desired files directly in Windows Explorer; you can add all readable image files in a folder; you can manually select images; or you can simply let the program search for images according to criteria you specify. The choice is yours! You can then save the image list you just created, so you will not have to add the same images again should you need to work with them in the future.
Remove Duplicate Images
If you downloaded a lot of images from the Internet, or happen to have a large collection of images on your hard drive, chances are high that there are many identical copies of images just wasting valuable hard disk space! Finding and removing these duplicate images manually is a daunting, if not impossible, task! Duplicate Image Remover integrated into this program is the solution that can save you hours of time and megabytes of space!
25+ Image Formats
The program supports more than 25 image formats, with even more formats coming soon (you can always let us know if you need support for another image format)! The program can read images saved in the following formats: BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, TIF, SGI, PSD, WMF, EMF, PCX, DDS, TGA, RAW, CUT, DCX, LBM, LIF, MDL, PCD, PIC, PNM, PSP, WAL, ACT, PAL, and HDR. The program can save images in the following formats: BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, TIF, SGI, WMF, EMF, PCX, DDS, TGA, RAW, PNM, PAL, and HDR.
Save time by accessing product’s functionality from within Windows environment. Simply select images in Windows Explorer (files in My Pictures folder for example), right-click, select the batch-processing option you desire, and let the program do the rest. Such close integration with Windows Operating System is entirely optional, and you can control it during installation.
Watch a Slideshow
Once you have selected the images for processing, you can watch slideshow composed of them where images will appear in a variety of creative ways. Unlike other slideshow programs, this program lets you zoom and pan the image from within a slideshow! When you zoom in, the slideshow would automatically pause, so you can examine the image in detail.
Working with Image List
You can view selected images in Thumbnail and Detail views. Images can be grouped by folder or type and sorted by name, size, and date. You can also search for specific images within the list. In addition you can perform various file operations right within the image list: you can copy or move selected images to another folder, you can delete images, etc.
90+ Actions & Effects
Whether you are looking to resize images or watermark them, to adjust contrast or convert images to grayscale; with more than 90 built-in actions, you will find all the needed functionality in this product! You can easily apply several actions to an image in a sequential manner: for example you can resize the image first, and then adjust brightness, and there is no limit to how complex action sequences can be. Actions can be selected from Office-2007-like drop-down galleries, where they are organized into appropriate categories.
Save Time with Templates
You can save time and access previously created sequences of actions (including all customized options) using templates. There are built-in templates for watermarking and some special effects already in the program; but you can create as many additional templates as you want! Simply save the action sequence you just constructed as a template in one click; and it will appear in the drop-down templates gallery, so you can instantly access it in the future.
Creative Effects with Layers
Take batch image processing to a truly professional level with layers! Layers make it possible to apply actions to either parts of the image or overlayed objects (like watermarks) that are then blended together with the original image using one of the many blend modes. With more than 20 color blend modes, advanced alpha-blending, size and positioning options, layers let you create very complex and impressive effects.
Live Feedback with Preview
As you are creating a sequence of actions to be applied to selected images by arranging actions within a sequence and changing their settings, you may want to know how the changes you make would affect the resulting image. Live preview serves exactly such purpose – it instantly reflects any changes you make to the action sequence, so you can compare the original image and the processed image side by side. You can zoom and pan images in preview as you like, as well as view different parts of the image quickly using handy pop-up navigator.
Alpha Channel Support
Work with 32-bit images seamlessly, as the product has native support for alpha channel, so unlike with other products, no transparency is lost when the images are processed. Not only do you get the benefit of preserved transparency, but alpha channel support in the product also allows you to create different blending and watermarking effects, resulting in truly professionally-looking images!
Compare with Snapshots
Save time by taking snapshots of the same image to which different actions (or same actions but with different settings) have been applied for future comparison. This is useful if you need to compare the effect that two different action sequences will have on an image side by side. There is no limit to how many snapshots can be taken – take as many as you need!
Process Images Quickly
After you have selected the images to be processed and specified what actions the program should perform, the program can begin to process the images. It will process images faster if your computer has a dual- or multi-core processor, or if it has several processors installed.
Convert Image Formats
You can easily use Batch Image Processor as image converter. You can simply skip the second step and not specify any actions to be performed; and in the final step select the desired image format in which the images will be saved. The program can convert images in these formats: BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, TIF, SGI, PSD, WMF, EMF, PCX, DDS, TGA, RAW, CUT, DCX, LBM, LIF, MDL, PCD, PIC, PNM, PSP, WAL, ACT, PAL, and HDR to images in these formats: BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, TIF, SGI, WMF, EMF, PCX, DDS, TGA, RAW, PNM, PAL, and HDR.
Rename Image Files
You can specify exactly how you want the program to name image files after images have been processed. You can let the program use original file name entirely, use original file name in addition to some static or dynamic text, or create entirely new file name based on either static or dynamic text or both. Naming possibilities are endless!
Create Web Galleries
Publish your processed images online in the form of nice browsable web gallery! Save hours of precious time by leaving the boring work of creating all HTML code to Batch Image Processor’s Web Gallery Maker! It will generate a simple fast-loading web gallery with thumbnails, titles, and navigation in seconds!
You can specify how many rows and columns a gallery page should contain, thumbnail size and file type, gallery title, and other options. Galleries can be styled using one of the built-in CSS themes, or you can easily apply your own CSS theme. There is also an option to control navigation, as well as page generation for every image (versus a direct link to the image file from thumbnails page).
